Sex and the Law: An Overview

As enjoyable and pleasurable as sex can be, there are laws in place to protect people from being abused through sexual  and domestic violence.  For example, in the United States, consent is needed by all persons involved in order for the sexual activities to be deemed legal.  It is important to know what is legal and what is illegal before engaging in sexual activities.  One does not want to physically and emotionally hurt his/her sexual partner and consequently be punished by law.  We recommend that people read the following articles to learn what is permissible and what is not before engaging in sexual activities to ensure all persons have the best experiences possible.
